Modelzone currently have an offer for the Revell DR 132 (BR 232) they are selling the kits for a stunning £7!!



I got a couple and i am looking for suitable motor bogies (it will probably end up being a bull ant but i havent decided yet.)

Have any of you made one of these? how accurate are they?

Anyone fancy making this a group thing? how about we each get one and build them together?

That looks pretty comprehensive. As to power would the old Hornby 52 bogie fit?

QUOTE can't find these kits on Modelzone's website...where are they???

IIRC Pedro often passes the store in High Holborn. The map suggests it's close to where Beatties used to be.

QUOTE it actually is the old beatties store.
That's where my H & M Duette was bought in 1976.

Peter, I think that you are going to have to buy us each one. I can't see it on the Modelzone group website.

A few kits are available on eBay, but not for 7 squid. More like Double that. There is one shop selling a few other Revell train kits on eBay. £14 for a 1:87 Big Boy. I just might have one of those...

Ok i cant find it on the website either.

Ok then. i will get them for anyone who wants them and they can pop a check in the post.

Who would like one? (or 2)

The steam loco's are nice models but i wish they hadnt done the valve gear as a single piece. it cant be motorised and really is just a static kit.

Peter

*** if U are happy to use it, buy me one of the diesels, advise the total in GBP including airmail to Australia and using the "pay anyone" feature I will put the amount in your paypal account in GBP - it will be usable next time U want to make a PAYPAL payment.... If not, thats OK & no problem, just let me know.

(I'll need your paypal email addressPM'ed to me so I can pay you)

regards

Richard

The 232 "Ludmilla" is one of my favourite European locos, big, ugly and dirty. I had a look round one a few years ago and they really are impressive.

As to a kit I regrettably have to turn the offer down.
